Integral Senior Living and Solstice Senior Living Shift Richy to National Director of Resident Engagement
CARLSBAD, CA — Senior living community management firm Integral Senior Living and its affiliate, Solstice Senior Living, have announced a title change for Brenda Richy; she is now national director of resident engagement. Her previous role was national director of resident programming. This new emphasis on resident engagement demonstrates Solstice’s and ISL’s dedication to actively tackling the disparity between older adults’ perceptions of health and wellness and the wide-ranging health benefits of senior living communities. Through a reenergized, strategic approach, Solstice and ISL are bridging this gap and redefining the narrative surrounding resident engagement in the senior living industry.
“Engagement is not just a part of our services; it’s at the core of our residents’ quality of life,” said Collette Gray, president and CEO of Integral Senior Living and Solstice Senior Living. “Brenda’s rich passion for seniors and immense leadership expertise have always been instrumental in ensuring that our residents enjoy a rich and fulfilling lifestyle. This title change acknowledges her pivotal role in our commitment to supporting resident engagement in every aspect.”
Richy will continue to collaborate closely with each community in the Solstice and ISL portfolio.
“Being appointed as the national director of resident engagement at Solstice Senior Living and Integral Senior Living fills my heart with immense joy and purpose,” Richy said. “This role represents not just a job but a true calling to elevate the lives of our beloved residents. Our new strategic vision in amplifying our Vibrant Life program’s impact will help our residents build nurturing relationships with one another. I’m eagerly looking forward to ongoing collaboration with each of our communities in this reenergized role.”
